Odour emissions at the ladle drying plant of the BOS Plant have been halved since December 2021. Electronic noses on our site are monitoring odour for a longer period of time. Compared to the situation from before the measures, these observed 50% fewer odour components. These positive results match those of the eNoses in the immediate living environment.
At the pickling lines of the Cold Strip Mill, acid vapours are now extracted and washed in a so-called vapour scrubber. To further reduce odour emissions, we have improved the operation of the vapour exhaust system at one of the pickling lines. Furthermore, in December 2021 we installed an additional vapour scrubber. We are currently investigating what else we can do to limit odour.
We will continue unabated with new measures and measures already taken at Coking and Gas Plant 2. We are going to build a new type of ladle drying plant at the BOS Plant. And we are conducting follow-up research at the Pickling lines to further reduce odour emissions.
The results are based on initial measurements or verifications by independent, accredited measurement agencies. View the measurement reports via the link below.
